Modernian Teaching Scheme

E Mail : [email protected]


Modernian Swimming Club's learn to swim scheme is recognised throughout the Borough of Bedford and the County for its quality and value for money.

 Lessons are held at Bedford Modern School Pool which we hire early evenings and weekends. Lessons range from 30 minutes to one hour depending on the swimmers ability. All abilities are welcome and our class structure can be viewed here. We take swimmers from as young as three.

 Lessons operate in term time only and a course of lessons is between 10 to 14 weeks depending on the length of the Bedfordshire school term. Fees are paid prior to the start of each term during enrolment weeks at the end of the previous term. We operate a Priority Enrolment Week for existing swimmers three weeks before the end of each term and then open up enrolment for anyone two weeks before the end of term. The cost of lessons for each term can be found on the enrolment form here

Our fully qualified ASA Teachers follow the National Plan for Teaching Swimming which covers beginners to advanced level swimmers. Once swimmers have reached a certain level there is the opportunity to progress into "Bridging" Squad which prepares swimmers for entry into our competitive squads if that is the path they wish to take.

 We follow the ASA Learn to Swim Award Scheme and the ASA Aquatic Skills Award Scheme; initially starting with Duckling awards and progressing on through these awards to include Water Skills, Challenges all of which run alongside the ASA Rainbow distance awards.

 For further enquiries email us at [email protected] or click here for an enrolment form.

 Better still come along and see for yourself - visitors are always welcome.

 Please note that there is a car park at the pool but it does not form part of our hire agreement with the school and there will be occasions when our customers will not be able to use it due to school commitments. We apologise if you are unable to use the car park on any specific day but do endeavour to give as much notice as possible, when we have been advised, that this is the case. There is parking available on Clapham Road, a short 3 minute walk from the pool.

No refunds for lessons will be given should the car park not be available.
